Beautiful Moon


There are billions of stars in the sky
There are trillions of lamps on earth
None glows like the beautiful moon
At your uprise the world glows
Your appearance reveals God's glory
Your incadescent light brghtens the world
Your short monthly appearance
Reminds us that God is light
You are so constant from creation




You have no turbine
You have no connecting wire
Megawatts has no relationship with you
There is no socket on the wall
Yet you are afar glowing the world
You neither burn nor hurt
That's while some tell tales under you
Some use you as a periodical guide
Some see you as a symbol of worship
I see you as God's created beauty.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
